Get ready to turn your Instagram photos into cash with Instaprints.
Almost every owner of a smart or android phone has heard of Instagram. One of the biggest mobile and online marketing trends to hit the 21st Century, it has quickly amassed over 40 million users, with many of these being small businesses and huge corporations. And now, the latest advancement in Instagram technology looks to be set to make many of them – and maybe even you! – more money. Launching today, Instaprints allows users to sell their photographs as canvas, framed or acrylic prints, and even cards and posters. “Creating Instaprints was a natural extension of what we’ve been doing with Fine Art America,” says creator Sean Broihier. “In less than a minute, any Instagram user can join Instaprints.com, import his/her portfolio of images and immediately begin selling them.” The site even includes community features which provide the perfect platform for businesses to follow their favourite clients’ pictures, participate in online discussions and even host a live chat – the ideal way to quickly give your consumers the advice they need. We admit, this isn’t the platform for everyone, but you needn’t be a professional photographer to benefit from Instaprints.

Or even a car dealership who has snapped their vehicles in impressive settings? The beauty of Instagram is that the range of filters you can apply to your pictures has the potential to make even the worst photos look professional and classic, and if you pick the right setting, can make any product or office event look like a user’s next piece of artwork.
